Artwork Description

Self portrait. A lot of people want to become a king, but I think it would wear on you after a bit.

Technical information. This was done of strathmore 5ply plate finish bristol. This stuff is tough enough and slick enough that as long as you have a layer of gouache for a ground and be careful with the overly staining colours you can work subtractively in watercolour, it's pretty easy to go back and make changes and pick out highlights, stuff that you don't normally do in watercolour. Good stuff, though patience is required.
